Thats the way arches go.
An arches job in life is to just lay flat, it wants to stretch out.
You, the oven builder, have to stop it from doing so.


So what kind of recommendation can you make?

Look at the website, you need to extend the forces of thrust somewhere, they just cant stop in mid air or the arch will fail.

Some more work done from the other day.

Im really loving these bricks. Minus the fact that all the bricks are different sizes. Wouldn't be surprised if they were hand made. For the installation of the brick we cut them in half, basically doubling the use of these bricks, so we installed them with thinset, we will go back and fill the gaps with mortar.







Beautiful sky from last night



Removed the entry/arch form, need to fill in the gaps with fine sand.

May i add that ive been fairly happy with this blade MK Diamond 159407 MK-99 10-Inch Dry or Wet Cutting Segmented Saw Blade with 5/8-Inch Arbor for Concrete and Brick - Amazon.com.


Ive been doing all these cuts and about finished the build on just one blade and still using it, its almost done but its still on the saw. I have one more sitting in the garage but for the price this was a nice blade.
